Which of Ireland’s three biggest sports teams is the best?
The Irish Examiner has today released the results of its Sport IQ quiz, which quizzes the top three professional rugby league clubs.
The top three clubs in the country have all won a World Cup since 2005, while the best domestic team of any sport in Ireland is the Irish Rugby League, which has won eight World Cups and four European Cups.
The Ireland team is ranked at No.1 in the world, with the top five in the UK, France, Italy, Germany and Spain.
In the world’s top five leagues, Ireland has two teams ranked in the top 10, while five of the top 15 teams are in the US.
The Irish are also ranked sixth in the World Cup standings, having been beaten by Italy on penalties in the final.
Rugby league has seen some ups and downs over the last decade, but the Irish have improved massively since 2004, with three of their five top-flight wins from 2011 to 2016.
